This paper reports on a study of the interference effects from 2 types of ultra wideband (UWB) sources on a QPSK transmission system by simulation. The culprit UWB sources were: multi-band orthogonal frequency-division multiple-access (MB-OFDM) and direct-sequence UWB (DS-UWB), which were modeled on the proposal specifications in the IEEE 802.15.3a to standardize high-speed wireless personal area networks. Average bit error rate (BER) degradation of the victim system was evaluated under in-band interference from the UWB signals. The proposed modified equivalent baseband system was employed in the simulation in order to reduce the simulation costs. Interference effects from the UWB sources were also examined under a Rayleigh fading channel.
